WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Officials of Wichita Habitat for Humanity are scrambling to make up for a costly break-in at a storage unit.

KWCH-TV reports (https://bit.ly/X8BD5Z ) subcontractors and electricians at a home-building site discovered earlier this week that all of the power tools being stored in the pod had been stolen.

Wichita Habitat for Humanity executive director Ann Fox says someone used a saw to cut through a padlock. She says the replacement cost is about $12,000.

Police had not recovered any of the tools by Friday. But members of the Wichita Area Builders Association have replaced some of the items out of their warehouses.

Fox said she’s grateful for the help. The project has been underway for several months, and Fox said the donated tools will help keep the work going.
